Tension Headaches: Causes and Treatment
Tension headaches are a common and irritating problem that many people will experience at some point in their lives. They can even flare up at unexpected times, vary in intensity, and last anywhere between minutes to days. If you are having a dull, aching pain, a tight sensation across the forehead, or tenderness on the neck or shoulders, then it is time to visit our chiropractors at Bakke Chiropractic Clinic in Tacoma for tension headaches treatment.
Common Causes of Tension Headaches
Tension headaches are typically the result of muscle constriction in the head or neck. However, certain triggers can start the symptoms of this type of headaches, such as foods, activities, and stressors. Having poor posture, being fatigue, not drinking enough water, skipping meals, and using a computer for long periods without taking a break are just a few other factors that can cause tension headaches.
Chiropractic Treatment for Tension Headaches
Unfortunately, too many people turn to non-chiropractic help first for severe headaches. This can lead to being prescribed painkillers or even invasive treatments that can do long-term damage to the body and interrupt the natural healing responses in the body.
Here at Bakke Chiropractic Clinic, our chiropractors always use non-invasive, side-effect free treatments for these kinds of problems. One of our core treatments is spinal adjustments, and it is the ideal method for relieving tension headache symptoms. Another method that reduces pain and tension from this type of headaches is massage therapy. Not only is it soothing, but it can reduce the intensity and frequency of the tension headaches. We can even provide advice on managing stress, avoiding stressful situations, holding proper posture, and getting good nutrition to your diet to stop the occurrence of your tension headaches.
